Fantasy Football 2013: Critiquing Brian Hoyer
Brian Hoyer has emerged from relative obscurity to lead the Cleveland Browns to consecutive wins at Minnesota and versus Cincinnati. An undrafted free agent in 2008, he played with New England and Arizona between 2009-2012, completing 57 of 96 passes for 616 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.
